DDSA Fellowship Programme 

About DDSA Fellowship Programme

The main objective of the DDSA Fellowship Programme is to attract and educate excellent PhD students and Postdocs within Danish data science, achieve scientific excellence and impact, while simultaneously extending the application of data science in relevant scientific domains.


PhD and postdoc

All Danish Data Science Academy scholarships are fixed individual awards to the most promising candidates. Funding young researchers is instrumental to obtaining one of the overarching goals of DDSA: to increase volume and quality of data science research. Furthermore, fellowship holders will be key participants in the efforts to build a data science community across disciplines.

By focusing on fully funded fellowships, we aim to support visionary data science students that want to pursue their ambitious research ideas at a Danish university.

The programme is dedicated to promoting equal opportunities for all applicants regardless of gender, nationality, background, and geography. Applications will be invited yearly via an open competition call.

The table below shows the number of fellowships by year.
